Chrysocolla is an opaque copper silicate mineral. It has a superb range of colours, browns, vivid greens, dark blue and toturquoise blue. Because this is a mineral that contains copper, it often occurs in association with Malachite and Azurite. It gets its name from the words ‘chrysos’ and ‘kolla’ ancient Greek words for ‘gold’ and ‘glue’. Because it contains copper ore they could use it to solder gold, hence the name.

The Lily Mine, Pisco Umay in Peru is the source of this chrysocolla egg, it is located about 200 km south of Lima.
